Enterprise Electronics | Robert L. (Bob) Burchett

(Late Submission)
Mr. Orsulak;

I read with great interest the well written NTIA Request For Comment on May
12 and during the last 3 weeks have compiled a comprehensive report document in reply.

Please review and post this document accordingly; there is much industry information here and it tries hard to address all sides of this difficult issue to hopefully lead NTIA and the Bureaus of Prisons in the several states to good conclusions.

Best regards;
